I have a 2003 Kia and mine did this same thing. They replaced some switch in the brake and gear shifter. It hasn't had a problem since.

2003 kia. spectra 1.8 will not shift out of park. The actuator. in the console is working when I hit the brake. The button pushes in but the shifted will not release out of park.


If you are sure the release actuator is working (or are you just hearing it?) when you step on the brake pedal it maybe just stuck against the weight of the car. Is it parked on a hill, or against a curb?

Could it be that you are hearing it click and it works electricaly but is broken mechanicaly

Is the car running good? If the motor isnt running right and is missing with no power it will cause the transmission to shift hard due to taking to long to shift, so it could just need a tune up

My 2001 Kia Spectra, automatic transmission, has the shifter stuck in park. Kris Forster


if your vehicle required brake application prior to shifting out of park your problem exists in the switch at the brake pedal, the solenoid that unlocks the shifter control a fuse or the wiring between them.

2003 Kia Spectra odd rattle in shifter


You are most likely hearing metal on metal on the brake pads. The brakes are not attached to the gear shift in any way. Unless those Koreans have done some really wierd design.

2002 Kia Spectra stuck gear shift


Sounds like you need a new shifter assembly, or the brake switch. Most likely will be the shifter though if you can move it out of park with the override.

Some car does this, when you turn on the AC, the engine automatic gets more juice, but not always, sometimes you have to use your left foot touch your break pedal incase.
